Life of a Jackal

Another day a new beginning

Live messenger UI screenshots


A blog that covers developments in Microsoft’s Windows Live initiative,
has posted a couple screenshots of Live Messenger with what they claim
is an almost-final UI design. The screenshots show a contact list and
message windows that are much close to the Vista feel we’ve been seeing
a lot lately, and less chunky than the last batch we saw. The new
design has retained most of the elements from the last revision, but to
my eyes seems more compact and less cluttered. It still has that
unwelcome (to me, at least) MSN Video box at the bottom, but I’m
guessing that will be toggleable. The message windows are (still)
completely uninspiring, but apart from AIM Triton’s vertical tabs
(which I’m not entirely sold on yet), I don’t really see anybody else
doing anything different in that department. Head over to LiveSide to
see the screenshots.
